Trams gain traction in Aarhus (Denmark)

A new tram system in Aarhus has achieved an impressive feat: it will increase mobility and cut down on emissions.

The first stage of the light rail project will be a new 12 kilometre line, named the “Urban Line”. This will commence at Aarhus central station and pass through key locations in the city before connecting to an existing line that is being converted for light rail operation. 17 new stops will added, while park and ride facilities near existing stops have been refurbished already.
